The 1913 French Grand Prix was held on a 20-mile road course to the southeast of Amiens. As was common at the time, the course was a triangle of public roads although a clockwise direction was chosen, unlike its predecessors. The undulating circuit included a narrow and difficult s-bend as the road passed under the railway near Boves but was generally welcomed by the drivers. However, a spectator was killed when Kenelm Lee Guinness' Sunbeam crashed into the River Avre after puncturing a tyre. The race proved to be a local triumph for 1912-winner Georges Boillot repeated that success in a 1-2 for Peugeot as Frenchmen filled the top five positions.
